Training for LensMechanix

Design Optomechanical Systems Using LensMechanix

At this live, instructor-led online training course, attendees learn how to package, analyze, and validate optomechanical systems using LensMechanix. The class meets for four hours per day for three days. The course introduces attendees to the basic principles of optics and includes LensMechanix demos, lab exercises, activities, troubleshooting techniques, tips, and resources to use on the job. The course is designed for mechanical engineers with little or no background in optics.

Top benefits
  • Acquire the skills to package, analyze, and validate optomechanical systems in LensMechanix
  • Learn how to use LensMechanix to assess the impact of mechanical designs on the optical performance
  • Gain skills in using the LensMechanix toolset to troubleshoot and correct issues caused by the mechanical design
  • Get hands-on experience through activities, labs, use of lens sample files, and real-world examples
  • Learn from optomechanical engineers on the LensMechanix team who are product experts
  • Loading an OpticStudio file
  • Viewing lens data
  • Choosing the correct analysis settings
  • Running ray traces and analyzing results
  • Troubleshooting spot size, beam clipping, and image contamination issues
  • Updating an OpticStudio design file
  • Saving an OpticStudio output file
Skills gained
At the end of the course, attendees will be able to:
  • Explain optical concepts
  • Identify common issues caused by mechanical designs
  • Set up optomechanical analyses
  • Troubleshoot issues in the Optical Performance Summary table
  • Correct errors due to mechanical components before manufacturing
No knowledge of OpticStudio or LensMechanix is required. Working knowledge of SOLIDWORKS is required.   
The class meets for three consecutive days, four hours each day. On the third day, you will work on a lab of your choice to give you the opportunity to work at your own pace and ask questions. The last day of the course is optional but highly recommended.
